    Let x = adult tickets and y = student ones.

    x = 9 - y

    10x + 8y = 78

    Substitute 9-y for x in second equation and solve for y. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for x. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.

    6 Student tickets X $8.00 = $48.00

    $78.00 minus the $48.00 = $30.00

    $30.00 divided by $10.00 Adult Cost = 3 adult tickets.
